Artist Statement

Since I'm speaking 4 languages (English, Russian, Japanese and German), I am also writing poetry in all those languages. My series "Multilinguetry" allow readers with at least one language of those above to understand some parts of my poem. Surely, the more languages you speak, the more you can understand. So is this poem for every reader an individual experience.
